WHAT IS CERVICAL SCREENING?

Cervical Cancer

 

Whilst patients currently cannot book a smear test without an invitation to do so, it is very important to make and attend your appointment when you are due. The current national guidance states that patients are eligible for their cervical screening/smear test:

  • If aged between 50 and 64 should be screened every five years.
